Every year, nearly 42,000 struggling neighbors in Northeast Pennsylvania count on us to provide them with the food, services and resources they require to survive. Over 15,000 are children whose families depend on soup kitchens and food pantries for dinner.
And we depend on friends like you. Your gift today to our 2017 Annual Fund will help feed working families with young children who cannot make ends meet, seniors living on fixed incomes struggling to pay for food and unemployed individuals who may be visiting a food pantry for the first time.
Many people in Northeast Pennsylvania don’t realize how many of their neighbors are struggling to feed themselves and their families at this time of year. It’s easy to remember the hungry when the holiday spirit is in the air. But it’s just as important to remember them now.
Together, we are the face of hope and a much-needed lifeline to our neighbors struggling to get by. Your support for the Food Bank’s Annual Fund will be put to use right away, lending a helping hand to struggling neighbors in Northeast Pennsylvania.
The Food Bank works with over 300 community partners to provide more than 9 million pounds of food for children, seniors, individuals, and families throughout our service area per year.
The people we serve belong to all walks of life here in Northeast Pennsylvania. The Food Bank believes everyone should have access to nutritious food. Hunger threatens people’s health and their ability to learn and work.
Please help by making a generous donation today to our 2017 Annual Fund. Your continuing dedication to fight hunger helps change lives.
